Thor: Love and Thunder Blu-ray Date and Special Features Revealed

Maybe people will eventually learn that Taika Waititi is deadpan kidding half the time he makes claims. Take, for example, the one about how he was never going to let any Thor: Love and Thunder deleted scenes see the light of day. It would be hugely out of character for him to do that, yet massively in-character to joke about it. And sure enough, the Thor: Love and Thunder Blu-ray will have some. The description of one such moment — “Thor, Valkyrie and Korg run into a few characters while seeking an audience with Zeus” — strongly implies it might be the one that includes Jeff Goldblum and Peter Dinklage’s cut cameos. With Lena Headey taking legal action over her cut scene royalties, she’s less likely.

Thor: Love and Thunder hits digital Sept 8, the same day it goes live on Disney+. The 4K and Blu-ray will follow 19 days later, on the 27th. Here’s a new trailer for it:
